Strain Energy A uniform rod is subjected to a slowly increasing load
The elementary work done by the load P as the rod elongates by a small dx is which is equal to the area of width dx under the load-deformation diagram. The total work done by the load for a deformation x1, which results in an increase of strain energy in the rod. In the case of a linear elastic deformation,

Strain Energy Density To eliminate the effects of size, evaluate the strain- energy per unit volume, The total strain energy density resulting from the deformation is equal to the area under the curve to e1. As the material is unloaded, the stress returns to zero but there is a permanent deformation. Only the strain energy represented by the triangular area is recovered. Remainder of the energy spent in deforming the material is dissipated as heat.

Strain-Energy Density
The strain energy density resulting from setting e1 = eR is the modulus of toughness. The energy per unit volume required to cause the material to rupture is related to its ductility as well as its ultimate strength. If the stress remains within the proportional limit, The strain energy density resulting from setting s1 = sY is the modulus of resilience.

Elastic Strain Energy for Normal Stresses

Taking into account only the normal stresses due to bending, determine the strain energy of the beam for the loading shown. Evaluate the strain energy knowing that the beam is a W10x45, P = 40 kips, L = 12 ft, a = 3 ft, b = 9 ft, and E = 29x106 psi. Integrate over the volume of the beam to find the strain energy. Apply the particular given conditions to evaluate the strain energy.

Strain Energy for a General State of Stress
Previously found strain energy due to uniaxial stress and plane shearing stress. For a general state of stress, With respect to the principal axes for an elastic, isotropic body, Basis for the maximum distortion energy failure criteria,

Assume that the kinetic energy is transferred entirely to the structure, Assume that the stress-strain diagram obtained from a static test is also valid under impact loading. Consider a rod which is hit at its end with a body of mass m moving with a velocity v0. Maximum value of the strain energy, Rod deforms under impact. Stresses reach a maximum value sm and then disappear. For the case of a uniform rod,

Example 11.06 SOLUTION: Due to the change in diameter, the normal stress distribution is nonuniform. Find the static load Pm which produces the same strain energy as the impact. Evaluate the maximum stress resulting from the static load Pm Body of mass m with velocity v0 hits the end of the nonuniform rod BCD. Knowing that the diameter of the portion BC is twice the diameter of portion CD, determine the maximum value of the normal stress in the rod.

Example 11.06 Find the static load Pm which produces the same strain energy as the impact. Evaluate the maximum stress resulting from the static load Pm SOLUTION: Due to the change in diameter, the normal stress distribution is nonuniform.

Example 11.07 SOLUTION: The normal stress varies linearly along the length of the beam as across a transverse section. Find the static load Pm which produces the same strain energy as the impact. Evaluate the maximum stress resulting from the static load Pm A block of weight W is dropped from a height h onto the free end of the cantilever beam. Determine the maximum value of the stresses in the beam.

Example 11.07 Find the static load Pm which produces the same strain energy as the impact. For an end-loaded cantilever beam, SOLUTION: The normal stress varies linearly along the length of the beam as across a transverse section. Evaluate the maximum stress resulting from the static load Pm

For the case of a uniform rod, For the case of the nonuniform rod, For the case of the cantilever beam Maximum stress reduced by: uniformity of stress low modulus of elasticity with high yield strength high volume

Work and Energy Under a Single Load
Previously, we found the strain energy by integrating the energy density over the volume. For a uniform rod, Strain energy may also be found from the work of the single load P1, For an elastic deformation, Knowing the relationship between force and displacement,

Work and Energy Under a Single Load
Strain energy may be found from the work of other types of single concentrated loads. Transverse load Bending couple Torsional couple

If the strain energy of a structure due to a single concentrated load is known, then the equality between the work of the load and energy may be used to find the deflection. From statics, From the given geometry, Strain energy of the structure, Equating work and strain energy,

Sample Problem 11.4 SOLUTION:
Find the reactions at A and B from a free-body diagram of the entire truss. Apply the method of joints to determine the axial force in each member. Evaluate the strain energy of the truss due to the load P. Members of the truss shown consist of sections of aluminum pipe with the cross-sectional areas indicated. Using E = 73 GPa, determine the vertical deflection of the point E caused by the load P. Equate the strain energy to the work of P and solve for the displacement.

Sample Problem 11.4 Evaluate the strain energy of the truss due to the load P. Equate the strain energy to the work by P and solve for the displacement.

Work and Energy Under Several Loads
Deflections of an elastic beam subjected to two concentrated loads, Compute the strain energy in the beam by evaluating the work done by slowly applying P1 followed by P2, Reversing the application sequence yields Strain energy expressions must be equivalent. It follows that a12=a21 (Maxwell’s reciprocal theorem).

Castigliano’s Theorem
Strain energy for any elastic structure subjected to two concentrated loads, Differentiating with respect to the loads, Castigliano’s theorem: For an elastic structure subjected to n loads, the deflection xj of the point of application of Pj can be expressed as

Deflections by Castigliano’s Theorem
Application of Castigliano’s theorem is simplified if the differentiation with respect to the load Pj is performed before the integration or summation to obtain the strain energy U. In the case of a beam, For a truss,

Sample Problem 11.5 SOLUTION:
For application of Castigliano’s theorem, introduce a dummy vertical load Q at C. Find the reactions at A and B due to the dummy load from a free-body diagram of the entire truss. Apply the method of joints to determine the axial force in each member due to Q. Members of the truss shown consist of sections of aluminum pipe with the cross-sectional areas indicated. Using E = 73 GPa, determine the vertical deflection of the joint C caused by the load P. Combine with the results of Sample Problem 11.4 to evaluate the derivative with respect to Q of the strain energy of the truss due to the loads P and Q. Setting Q = 0, evaluate the derivative which is equivalent to the desired displacement at C.
